A state landmark hosting wellness-focused dessert escapes, Arizona Biltmore, A Waldorf Astoria Resort pampers guests with expanded cottages, world-class golf courses, an adults-only pool lined with chic cabanas, tennis and pickleball courts made with Har-Tru technology, and easy access to countless surrounding hiking trails.

For a holistic ritual, the resort’s Tierra Luna Spa now offers a state-of-the-art, standalone SALT Chamber equipped with pure-grade Himalayan salt to boost immunity, improve mood, reduce stress for enhanced relaxation, heal skin from the dry desert air, combat aging and clean the respiratory system. Just as visiting a beach can lead to clearer and deeper breath, the new salt room mimics the healing effects of four days on the ocean in just 25 minutes.

After basking in a Halotherapy salt room session, guests can relax in the Sol Garden, the spa’s outdoor relaxation space set amidst ethereal mountain views and ocotillo coves. The open-air space is artfully outfitted with a cold plunge pool, hot tub, invigorating rain shower and a wellness bar serving immune-boosting cocktails and zero-proof refreshments. The treatment menu at Tierra Luna Spa and Sol Garden reflects core pillars including Desert Botanicals, Cosmic Connection and Dynamic Recovery. Indigenous mud, desert herbs and native scents are utilized throughout the spa menu to pay tribute to the resort’s desert surroundings, all brought to life through signature massage and body experiences, skin care, soaking experiences, cosmic experiences and more.

With an abundance of mindful rituals and healing journeys from an Alchemy Mud treatment and Crystal Bar to sound bowl meditation, Tierra Luna Spa and Sol Garden opens guests’ senses to the spirit of the desert.
